I think elder trees are okay. There are a few round my run. Do you need tp plan them though? The ones I've got have just appeared from when I've left bare soil.

Bear in mind though, once you've got an elder tree you can't cut it down. If you have to, you should ask the tree's permission first or you get bad luck  :D
